How can I help?

Ways To Help

Twin Meadows Animal Rescue Society (TMARS) is a non-profit organization.  We rely on the passion of our volunteers and the generosity of our community to keep our society running.  We accept both monetary and non-monetary donations. 

Monetary Donations

75% of TMARS annual budget is spent on vet bills alone in spite of substantial discounts from our local partner, Tanglefoot Veterinary Services. Vet care is the most expensive part of an animal rescue organization. At TMARS we vet every animal that comes into our care as we feel there is a responsibility to make sure our animals available for adoption are in good health and taken care of. Your support is critical.  DONATE NOW

Non-Monetary Donations

If you would like to assist with supplies, we accept:

  • Canned or dried food for dogs & cats

  • Kitten & puppy milk replacement formula 

  • Nursing bottles

  • Easy Walk Harnesses, Dog leashes and collars

  • 3ft or taller X-Pens/Puppy Pens and crates of all sizes

  • Scratching posts & pads

  • Cat toys and dog toys

  • Litter boxes & scoops 

  • Towels & Blankets

  • First Aid Supplies

  • Stainless steel dishes 

  • Nail scissors (especially cat ones)

Volunteer Today

TMAR needs volunteers. Volunteers can help with fundraising events, bottle sorting, manning the TMARS booth at markets to administrative duties.  If you love animals, you might love being a volunteer with TMARS. Helping an animal in need is a very rewarding experience and there are many different ways to help. Click here for a complete list of VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES.

Adopting & Fostering​

We are always looking for pet lovers to come provide forever homes to the animals that come into our care. We totally understand that adopting is a huge decision, so please let us know if you have any questions. You can see all currently available animals on our adoption page.

An alternative to adoption is fostering. This temporary arrangement seeks to place animals in a loving home until a more permanent home can be found for them.

Host a Third Party Fundraiser on behalf of TMARS

Celebrating a birthday or anniversary? Everyone is an animal lover and would appreciate your suggestion of a meaningful donation to TMARS rather than gifts. Having a corporate event that needs a purpose? Make it a fundraiser for TMARS and your guests will appreciate your engagement in the community.
